Spider Lace Lamp

The lace lamp is created of an over-scaled ‘spider’ pattern. Handmade on a bobbin lace pillow with many lost nerves during the process. Remember, bobbin lace is meant to be twodimensional and Mantzalin strives to ‘spacialize’ it.
Initially it was meant to be in a perfect geometric form.  After a series of “abuse tests’ it turned out that it looks much better in a deformed shape that can be adjusted since the material is wire-reinforced yarn and will easily reshape and then keep that shape.
